    I have been to this restaurant a couple of times now and the food was always good but last night the food was bland and dry, may have been a new chef but the standard has dropped which lead to us complaining but the waitress said they had several other complaints too.

    We really enjoyed the food and sangria, however we were sat upstairs in a corner with staff walking past us from the kitchen often when downstairs was empty ! We asked to move downstairs as it was a more couples vibe but was told everywhere was full , even though I had also booked.

    We really enjoyed our experience. We weren’t happy with the table we were originally seated at, which I think was quite clear from our faces, without any hesitation the waiter offered to move us to a different table of which we were extremely grateful for !! The food was lovely, on dish I was really looking forward to wasn’t available but this happens, I’ll just have it next time we go, and one dish was a bit cold. Other than that, food was really good! Service was good & all staff were polite and welcoming!

    Despite reading mixed reviews we decided to give this place a try. Sadly, we won’t return. We were looking forward to some nice Spanish flavours. The place has a nice authentic feel when you walk in but the music was awful and spoilt the atmosphere. Service was ok but nothing special to note. The food was room temperature and flavourless. We ordered the lamb dish which referenced a Rioja reduction - it was basically lamb stew with chick peas, so disappointing. The seasonal greens were boiled to death. Everything lacked seasoning and flavour. The only dish we enjoyed (despite it being lukewarm) was the chorizo. Also ordered cod croquettes but they were out so we swapped to ham which were just like mashed potato in breadcrumbs. Calamari smelled very fishy and was chewy, batter was pale and unappetising, squid ink aioli was congealed on the serving plate so had obviously been sat there a while. Overall, we couldn’t wait to leave and get something else to eat! Such a shame as we had high hopes.

    Clearly under staffed and those working poorly trained and inefficient. Not their fault but they have to deal with their employers failings at the sharp end. 30 mins after arriving still no one had approached us to take a drinks order even after asking. When eventually they did our waiter seemed not to understand even basic questions about the wines on offer. “Is the house white dry?” I asked, response we don’t have that type of wine.” Our drinks finally arrived 15 minutes later and our food yet another 30 mins after that. Food was okay at best, wine expensive and dreadful. Better available from Aldi for £5:00 than their cheapest at around £26:00. To add insult to injury a 12.5% service charge with no note it was optional was added to the bill (all non pre-agreed service charges are not enforceable in the UK). In my experience and view and I work in the hospitality industry, this is a device intended to catch out the unwary and is very poor practice. Yet further due to the shabby service our parking rate increased by £25.00 In all what should have been a pleasant and relaxing birthday celebration left us stressed anxious and unhappy. Thanks for that La Vina. I don’t hold the staff responsible they have a difficult job and are clearly badly supported by their employers, both resident in North London who have another concern in the city that hopefully gets more attention than its poor

    Fabulous meal for 4 of us, quality of food was excellent, table was a bit small for four with tapas and two paella’s so a bit of juggling with glasses and plates. Service was attentive, restaurant was quiet but atmosphere good. Overall was a lovely experience. Would definitely recommend.

    Service slow but friendly. Very limited Gluten free offering. Lamb stew very fatty and salty and was told ther was no butter for bread and no vinegar! Very disappointed as we had restaurant gift cards bearing the restaurant name but they wouldn't accept them. Despite me stating at time of booking I wanted to use them. Only positive was NHS discount that was given.

    The venue, ambiance and staff were great. The food however was very poor, lukewarm, soaked in oil and didn't have much to it. Served on greaseproof paper, no little pots of bubbling sauce like you would expect for tapas. It was a rare birthday meal out and we were disappointed with the quality of what we were served.

    A 12.5% automatic service charge is too much but not pointing it out to a client is deplorable. What I ate was great but there was nothing else on the menu I would have chosen. The moscatel I had with my heavy heavy chocolate mouse was disappointing. It wasn’t sweet, it didn’t taste of raisins and it was a thin watery disappointment. Would I go again, probably not.

    The restaurant was too cold (other guests just left without eating during our meal), the air conditioning/heating system had an irritating squeak during our stay, and our meal was lukewarm at best and far too salty. We have eaten tapas in many places in the UK and Spain, so this was disappointing. The menu was limited, and the price was high for the iffy quality and chilly venue. The staff were pleasant, Despite all this, we tried not to let this ruin our anniversary meal, so pressed on, and warmed-up at the panto (which was great!!)
